Kathy Griffin Breaks Her Silence on Giuliana Rancic/Zendaya Controversy

Kathy Griffin Breaks Her Silence on Giuliana Rancic/Zendaya Controversy

Kathy Griffin has broken her silence on the Fashion Police controversy where Giuliana Rancic made distasteful comments about Zendaya‘s hair which came under fire.

Kathy was asked if she would be under fire if she made the same joke, to which she replied, “Probably not. But I wouldn’t have said the joke in the first place. Some dude wrote it for her.”

“Don’t have anyone write you jokes or even suggest jokes for you on ‘Fashion Police.’ You have enough great insider gossip from actually being ON the red carpet. That’s what fans want to hear the next day. Just talk and be yourself,” Kathy said about the advice she gave Giuliana. “Here’s the best I can give you: I will make my Miley Cyrus jokes as long as people want to laugh at them…but there is a chasm of difference between making a joke about Miley Cyrus wearing duct tape over her nipples out in public (which I think is totally fair game) and simply looking at a photo of her on a red carpet and saying she is ugly or a bad singer or pathetic or something like that.”

She also addressed if Kelly Osbourne‘s exit had anything to do with Giuliana‘s comments.

“Jesus, I don’t know! Sometimes she seemed very upset at the merely seven tapings of ‘Fashion Police’ we did together…I can tell you this: I adore that family. I’ve spent the most time with Sharon. She is the real deal. Love her! Kelly came to my house a couple of times when Joan was in the hospital and we were consoling each other. I can tell you there was genuine love there. Oh, and of course, Ozzy is amazing,” Kathy said.

    The photo in this article has to be the most frightening of GR. That is seriously underweight her face is so gaunt the sucken cheeks are making her teeth look bigger.

  • Mr. Sardonicus

    I don’t think she’s a racist either. It was a stupid joke that was blown out of proportion.

  • SunnyAutumnn

    Guilana doesn’t even look human anymore… a skeleton with a thin covering of skin and huge eyes.

  • walking dread

    I’m sorry but its impossible for me to take the word of someone who looks like a giant and underfed praying mantis with a horrifying underbite on what is and is not attractive or fashionable on other people. Glass houses and stones, Giuliana.

    I bet your hair smells like vomit, toilet bowl cleaner and breath strips. That’s funny, right? Because you look bulimic (and anorexic) and everyone knows bulimics smell like puke ALL THE TIME.

    I could go on and point out that awful dress makes her vomit scented skin appear sallow and yellowish, and the monstrosity of cloth dwarfs her already petite frame and she needs 10-15 more pounds to carry the style off. Oh, and that overly large cheap looking metal, glitter and glass gem embellishment makes her small breasts utterly disappear under all the decoration. Which is not something you want to draw attention to.

    Yeah. Not nice, is it? I kind of want to shower after writing that.

  • Doris Martin

    No”dude” wrote the joke for her. She was trying to be funny,and she bombed. She needs to take Kathy’s advice & be herself. She’s not funny at all. She is difficult to watch, due to her obvious anorexia. She needs to get some help.

    Agree. Her head is bigger than her waist. It’s disgusting. And her comment that we have a problem? No .. your’e in denial.. You have a problem and need to get help. If someone had a drug or pill addiction and was on live TV, the network would require them to get help, right? Why not her?

  • Ash

    Wtf Giuliana? Just please eat Big Mac or something! Smh. Bill Rancic is too beautiful for her.

  • guest

    when will we tire of constantly body shaming one another?

  • Calbrit

    As well as posting comments why not send e-mails to the ones responsible for E News and let them know they should do something about this. GR is obviously in denial and maybe they are. None of us know whats going on behind the scenes. Their e-mail address is I recently stopped watching E News because of GR but she was off this week so I tuned in. Maybe it was my imagination but it appeared they were trying to do some repair work. First they did a segment about nasty comments being posted on Twitter and Jason Kennedy saying if you wont say it to someones face dont say it behind their back or on social media followed by a short segment about photoshopped pictures to change body appearances. I thought it strange as both applied to GR. Then there was a clip of GR at an airport in Australia looking for her lost luggage! It all seemed too obvious. NBC Universal need to know she shouldn’t be on the air looking the way she does. It was good to see Maria Menounos this week shes a beautiful and healthy looking woman.


    They look like plastic dolls. Their heads are disproportioned.

  • Marianne Steinmetz

    FP is a distasteful show…they pick on people all the time. Joan would say horrible things about people. Maybe is was a unfunny joke but it wasn’t racist and not the worst thing I ever heard on that show. Just when you think this story will finally go away with Kelly (yay)…it keeps coming back.

  • skwilliams

    She can say whatever she wants about her weight and try her best to deny and lie about it! People are commenting about this issue because it’s 100% obvious that Giuliana has an eating disorder or a very serious health problem! No one – and I mean no one – is THAT thin without a problem being involved somewhere! That is not “thin”, that is not normal, that does not look good, no one would WANT to be that skinny, and she definitely didn’t just wake up one morning like that, to get that skinny – that would take time and effort – dedication – it would require someone to stop eating or eat only enough to stay alive! Not to mention, before this, she was too skinny to begin with! But now, she looks pitiful! SICK – VERY SICK! And her excuses is nothing more than lies – or plain denial – because she DOES have a major issue with her weight – people are not blind – we see it – either she has an eating disorder or a major health issue – which one we don’t know – but we do know that Giuliana looks terrible – she’s went from being too skinny to almost nonexistent – and with her denial of a problem existing – that alone insinuates that it’s more likely an eating disorder! And with an eating disorder, a person suffering from it can actually see a distorted view – when looking in the mirror – or seeing themselves – they see fat – and/or overweight – those people do not see “real” – and this distorted belief leads to bad decisions and can also lead to major health issues – and some actually die from it! I pray, since she obviously doesn’t see a problem – which also makes her unable to seek help – hopefully those close to her will get the help she needs ASAP – instead of just sitting back and allowing her to deny this issue – time is crucial for the his lady! – because she has went way too far already with her weight loss – her organs can not be functioning properly, she’s probably already at the stage where her life could be at sake! Hell, if staying quite due to “Hollywood” – “Fashion Police” or any other job isn’t more important than her life! People in the industry have done far worse and survived! She won’t need Hollywood or a job if this continues – she will be dead!!!!!!!!!!

    Stroking to the thought that you can take him away from her, Sparky?

  • thagreatestmanalive

    Sounds like Osborne just didn’t want to work in the first place. Who quits a cushy good paying television job, because of an off-the-cuff comment that wasn’t directed towards her in the first place. Only rich spoiled kids.

  • C C

    She is finally had it with L.A…G has a great.hubby & a son & nothing in L..A.. is fun any longer.
    Kelly didn’t understand that G.was so close to Joan & Melissa & cooper. That no longer exist for G nor Kelly. The show should be revamped. Everyone changed & Kelly. Go find a job..go live off of Mom

    Whatever but stop actingLike a smart ass complaining…get.a. job..learn about journalism
    Get an education but stop
    Joan looks down on this as trouncing on.her reputation!!!!….she gave you a job Well keep it clean. You had a good 5 yr run!
